The Basics

Serenity Light Recovery was founded in 2014 in Angleton, Texas, a small town an hour’s drive away from Houston. The organization provides residential and outpatient treatment to adult men and women. Individuals seeking help with detoxing from alcohol and drugs, dual diagnosis issues and/or substance abuse are welcome at Serenity Light.

Facility and Meals

Serenity Light’s facility is on a large, lush green 10-acre plot of land in Angleton. Established in a former bed and breakfast venture, Serenity Light’s residential facility is a southern manor house with 11,000 square foot usable space.

The facility has a total of 62 beds, 10 of which are exclusively for detox clients. The remaining 52 beds are divided into both communal living spaces and private living quarters.

Serenity Light has eight private rooms with each room having a large bed, closet, armchair, writing desk, private bathroom, patio and secure entry. Shared rooms have either twin single beds or a collection of bunker beds as well as closet spaces, dressers, armchairs and shared bathroom spaces. All rooms are bright and airy with regular maintenance.

Communal living areas are well stocked with amenities and include TVs, a foosball table and an art room as well. Moreover, to ensure mental and physical health, an on-site gym and yoga room are also available. Clients are not allowed to have cell phones while staying at Serenity Light.

Serenity Light has an on-site chef is who prepares three meals daily for clients. A nutrition plan is prepared for each person after consultations with a certified dietician. This plan is designed to fulfill the client’s needs during and after the withdrawal process. Foods rich in vitamins and essential nutrients, such as meat and vegetables, are incorporated.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Serenity Light offers an individually tailored detox program to combat withdrawal symptoms. This program is based on clients’ unique substance abuse and other addiction history. The duration of detox is not fixed; rather it varies from case to case based on clients’ physical and mental safety along with medical requirements. The detox program is medically monitored and may integrate drugs such as Librium, Suboxone and Lorazepam for treatment. This individualized treatment is supervised 24 hours a day by a registered nursing staff and physicians.

Serenity Light’s residential program typically lasts for 30 to 35 days. This program is designed uniquely for each client by in-house clinical team and includes group, individual and family therapy. Counselors use evidence-based treatment techniques such as CBT and EMDR. Other supporting tools used during treatment include brain mapping, biofeedback, bio sound and relapse prevention.

Serenity Light also operates an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) targeted to clients that have prior work or school commitments and cannot attend residential treatment. The IOP is runs for eight weeks and meets four days a week Monday though Thursday. Just like the residential program, the IOP aims to meet each clients has an individualized therapy plan that is aimed at addressing each clients specific needs. Counselors in the IOP educate clients on relapse prevention, self-care and life skills. The IOP also has a family night every Wednesday to help educate family members on addiction issues.

Aftercare is available for up to one year after discharge that consists of regular, less intense individual and group sessions. This program entails weekly group meetings and regular alumni meet-ups.

Although Serenity Light is not 12-step based, clients are strongly encouraged to attend outside AA, NA and SMART Recovery meetings.

As previously mentioned, the organization is dual diagnosis equipped and facilitates comprehensive mental health care for clients with co-occurring disorders.

Serenity Light’s counselors consist of LCSWs, LCDCs, LMSWs, RNs and Master’s-level clinicians. The typical staff-to-client ratio can be between two-to-one and four-to-one as decided by the team. A senior doctor is also on the staff to look after all programs and cater to any emergency.
